    - L

  2. 6. SLR - RF doesn't have prism or central eye/viewfinder.

    7. Rangefinder. Early Leica, perhaps the iconic IIIf.

    11. Canon FD SLR - probably AE-1/A-1.

    12. Early SLR. Very similar to a Pentax Spotmatic - the yellow in the lens is a possible reference to the radioactive element in the early M42 50/1.4 that came with the early Pentaxes.

  3. 8. the tattoo is a Leica, he's holding a Kodak

  4. 4. Looks like it is a original Nikon F with no standard prism. It cant be a Holga or Woca since it has a mirror.

    6. is the back of a Nikon FM10

    7. Is a Leica IIIc Rangefinder w/ a 50mm f2 Summicron lens.

    11. Canon AE-1/AE- Program the A-1 has a switch by the advance lever that alows you to switch to full manual to shutter or aperture priority, this one does not.

    12 Is a Olympus Om-1(You have the rewind switch on the left side under the film advance lever The on off switch next to the rewind crank, the flash sync terminal on the right side behind the lens mount and the shutter speed selector dial is in front of that)
